Minuteman Project founder and 2005 American Independent (California Constitution Party) congressional candidate turned Republican Jim Gilchrist has endorsed Republican Mike Huckabee for president.
"The governor has a [illegal immigration] plan and I appreciate his plan. That's why I'm supporting him. He's one of the few who's actually brought forth a plan and gone public with it. It shows to me that he's willing to engage in the tough love necessary to fix this problem," said Gilchrist.
Republican presidential candidate Tom Tancredo campaigned for Gilchrist in his 2005 race and Gilchrist has previously expressed interest in seeking the 2008 presidential nomination of the Constitution Party.
